I Couldn't Articulate It, So I Wrote It Down: A collection of poetry and unfiltered thoughts
Author: Aaliyah Tardio
This poetry book is a collection that I have been writing down on paper, my poetry journal, notes app—basically anywhere and everywhere whenever I had an overwhelming thought or emotion that needed to be released from my body and put somewhere. I found comfort in poetry. It has always come naturally to me and provides me with the serotonin I need to keep navigating this life. It’s a coping mechanism I developed and found that worked for me—that didn’t damage myself or other’s within my emotional blast radius. I have BPD. In recent months, I have began attempting to meld my mind into perceiving my mental health wounds as superpowers. This book is for me and anyone else who struggles with their own brains. I’m so happy you’re still here and reading these words in this moment.
